MMS and SMS are two different kinds of wireless messaging protocols defined by the Wireless Message API (WMA). WMA v1.1 is covered in JSR-120 and WMA v2.0 is covered in JSR-205.
If you're looking to write a JavaEE application that sends MMS/SMS messages to mobile clients, then you'll have to find a library to do that. I'm not familiar with any specific free libraries that do this. The library needs to be able to communicate with a messaging server to send the messages (for example, an SMS server using SMPP). Also, there are differences between US mobile carriers and European/Asian carriers that affect how your application can deliver messages - US carriers typically don't allow you to address SMS messages to non-default ports on the mobile device, which can make it difficult to write mobile client apps with custom SMS processing.
